Piedmont 1 - Nelson River

Module Number: 49
Name: Piedmont 1 - Nelson River
Owner: Jim Davis
Builder: Jim Davis
Year Built:
Type: POFF
Size: 2 x 4 feet
Central Features: This module is one of a set of four with two POFFs and two 3 foot corners. They will go together in any order as needed for to support show layouts and each module has the alternate blue line. When used together crossovers from blue to alternate blue on the two POFFs will provide a passing and setup siding. The alternate blue line may be powered separately or from the blue line.
Inspiration: I was looking for something that would give me more than a flat module and provide something a little different from the scenes provided by other club members.  Nelson County, south of Charlottesville has rolling hills, lots of farms, and a number of small rivers and streams.  The Norfolk Southern line runs parallel to Route 29 in that area.  Module is designed to capture the rolling hills of the Piedmont area along Route 29 in Nelson County VA.  This module has several crop fields and the Nelson River.  Pre-stressed concrete bridges are used with dimensions taken from Civil Engineering drawings.
